What is a 'Gallery Walk'?

About the Artist -

concentrating on diverse shapes and textures to create individual sculptural entities.

In search of... Bapu
Exhibition of Photographs by Anuj Ambalal
"The idea of doing a photo series on Gandhiji emerged when I hypothesized a scenario in which one can make an adaptation of the Gandhian ideology to look into the current issues by forming a deeper understanding of the man and his philosophy. And the wish to explore this ideological adaption through the medium of photography is what led me to my search for Bapu.
The objective of this body of work is also to initiate a dialogue between the audience and the images. References to Bapu’s ideology have been encrypted into these images to explore a narrative that is woven with humour, sarcasm, reverence and fiction. This narrative is essentially open ended and the titles accompanied with relevant Gandhi quotes, chosen from the book Mohan Mala, are meant to provide clues. Based on these clues the viewer is required to form his own narrative and thus, initiate his personal journey in search of Bapu."
